      Down Sound Records has partnered with popular sound system selector Foota Hype to produce and promote the sizzling new Church Money on their DSR imprint.   The uptempo riddim features the likes of Konshens, Busy Signal, Munga, Elephant Man, Khago, I Octane, Harry Toddler, Bugle, Flex, Ishawna and newcomers Naazir and Don Husky.  
Standout songs include Konshens who sparkles with ‘Soldier’, but it is Busy Signal who outshines him by showing off  his lyrical prowess on ‘Defence’, a, rollicking gem of a song that announces Signal’s return in no uncertain terms.
Busy deejays with a rapid-fire delivery on the chorus:  Go tell the media say mi sicker than chlamydia/lyrics encyclopaedia/yu better get familiar/blast through yu speakers like C4 over Lybia.
Busy Signal takes a swipe at bleaching with the line: ‘gal dem love mi, mi nuh haffi change up mi skin tone’, and his singalong style of deejaying will have the fans dem chanting: ‘Defence! Defence! Rise from the fall.
The favourite line of dancehall insiders is a brilliant line where Busy deejays:  “mi head hot, but heart colder than subzero”.
Elephant Man is at his energetic best with ‘Kick Weh’, a jeep-rocker about Hennessy-sipping, booty-bouncing street dance sessions and partying in Kingston. Munga shows off his hustling props on ‘Real Estate’, while I Octane shows why he is one of the most consistent artistes in the game today with ‘Warn Dem’.
Ishawna, who has had a breakout year in 2012, is soulful and streetwise with ‘Thank You’ where she is grateful to God that she doesn’t have a ‘wutless man’. Don Husky is simply brilliant on Wah My Own where he uses his gruff, articulate delivery to take a few potshots at former members of the Gaza like Popcaan and Tommy Lee. He deejays: ‘ Popcaan mouth a get tape up/Tommy Lee ah scream like girl weh wear makeup’.
“Don Husky is getting the pullups in the dance, he is a surprise act coming out of Down Sound that connects with the dancehall underground,” top flight Down Sound beatsmith, Cordel ‘Skatta’ Burrell said.
Naazir’s limber elastic delivery is a revelation on ‘Buss It’ and his unusual voice will be a big hit with the teenybopper fans.  Khago the Skywalker shows off his signature voice and melodic delivery on ‘Mi Nuh Know’ where he boasts about his ability to buy his own liquor and decries the prevalence of ‘bad mind’. Harry Toddler sticks to his usual fare about indentifying real friendship on the well-written and produced 'Dem a Talk Bout Friend'. 
Bugle delivers brilliant social commentary on 'Trigger Happy Cop' while Flexx rounds out the project with 'Do Nothing'.
Foota Hype must be pleased with his well-produced projects with hard-hitting songs and brilliantly delivered songs. Pretty soon, Foota Hype will be counting and spending 'church money' when the sales start coming in.
